    Yes, I realized that after posting.

    I wonder if enabling only the SMB1 client is a risk (?); or is the problem only with the SMB1 server?

    Sorry NavyCmd, didn't see your post. The type of router that I have is the C7800 Nighthawk. Where do I go to set SMB = True? Didn't have to set anything as I type in your "Get" command and found out it is set to True.
    A "Router" or "Gateway" has zero to do with SaMBa. It could care less about the SaMBa standard that you are using for file and folder sharing.

    So far there isn't any firmware updates for the router. I believe this router just came out and when you pay $299 for something it should work perfect, well if this was a perfect world. I found another problem with the router as well. I downloaded several movies and music files to the router last night. At least 400 GB worth of stuff. Without anything on the readyshare, it was telling me that I had 938 GB free space. After the download it told me that I still had 938 GB free space.
    Tomorrow I'm calling NG to get answers to all these problems. Hopefully, someone will give me some answers to these questions or the router is going back for a refund.
    The Router has zero to do with how your computer hard drive space is. NetGear is not going to help you with figuring out why your computer shows that amount of space available on your hard drive. Possible that your files saved to some other drive space location.

    @bro67,

    You might have missed the point that we are talking about a USB external hard drive connected to the USB port on the router and being shared with ReadyShare.

    This would be your answer from NetGear, that the device only knows SMBv1, due to limitations. The best answer is to just not use it for sharing, since again, it really does not care about computers sharing and storage. Solved: Re: AC1200 R6120 ROUTER SMB2 compatibility - NETGEAR Communities Windows 10 is still backwards compatible with SMBv1/2/3, just does not use SMBv1 for sharing, because it is a outdated standard and has security risks. In other words, Windows is still going to see that share on the device, just will not downgrade to that standard.

    Windows 10 will not see the shares on an SMB1 only device unless the user enables SMBv1 in Windows 10.
